July 2014
Baked
"'Debt'
"
mp3

Last year Baked came out with a tape called S/T Cassette.  Two songs short, it's enough to see where the band is coming from; they're not afraid to blur themselves, letting the sounds melt into landscape jams.  On Debt, their debut off Exploding in Sound, Baked is still melting, but it's a much more guided flow.  The album mixes high velocities with the turned down mellow feels that Baked just seems to ooze from every orifice.   R.J. Gordon's vocals take a back seat under a wash of reverb, sitting just below the pop driven melodies that surround him.  "Mick Jagger" especially is a stunner, where Yoni David's drumming drives the tune as the rest of the sounds float in zero gravity.  There's something unobtainably attractive about this band's sound, whether it's because they remind us of England's long lost Wu Lyf, or because they channel Bedhead at the same time. - Jake Saunders

Sorority Noise to continue making noise after two members depart

Cameron Boucher, vocalist of Hartford indie punk quartet Sorority Noise, announced yesterday that Kevin O’Donnell and Jason Rule, the band’s bassist and drummer, respectively, would be leaving the band. In his statement, Boucher calls O’Donnell and Rule “two of the most talented dudes I know and the best rhythm section in the world,” attesting that all four bandmates remain close friends following the split. Rule later released his own statement citing that aside from some personal reasons, he and O’Donnell had no interest in moving forward stylistically with Sorority Noise. Boucher and Scuff, the band’s guitarist, plan to continue making music and working on a new Sorority Noise LP, while O’Donnell and Rule will likely take this time to focus on their band Queen Moo. – Jake Reed (@jakejreed)

Weekend Waves releases new EP just in time for "Fall"

Released on September 30, Weekend Waves’ Space Sounds is a great listen for a relaxing evening or a road trip with friends. Across four instrumental tracks, the band explores sounds from post-rock and metal (“Halloween”) to poppier indie rock on the EP opener “Fall.” It’s time to switch your playlist up from carefree summer anthems to songs that mirror the crisp new air of fall, and Space Sounds is the perfect place to start. – Jake Reed (@jakejreed)

THE DELI'S 7 OFFICIAL CMJ 2014 STAGES

DELI OFFICIAL CMJ SHOWS ANNOUNCED, FULL SCHEDULE HERE 


Cheem shows that pop punk can still be innovative on debut EP

After working on it for nearly a year, Connecticut’s Cheem released its debut EP, Elka, on September 10. The pop punk set starts off with the spunky “Chicks Love Gongs,” a track boasting two choruses basically sung at the same time. (It works to great effect though – just listen!) The mood shifts on the EP’s title track, a love song of sorts that promises “I’m never far” and details a romantic runaway over beautiful chords. Later, the band shows off its knack for catchy, tight guitar riffs on “Reward” and pushes its instrumental boundaries on the spacious outro track “Apollo.” Download Elka for free now over on the band’s Bandcamp page. – Jake Reed (@jakejreed)
